Photo and caption by Jonathon Thigpen
This photograph was taken without a flash and with my shutterspeed set to 1/60th of a second due to the low-light. The reason there is no blur on the birds wings is that it literally held its wings still for an instant to dry them out. I thought this photograph surmised the fact that all of creation, especially our planet, is a fragile, beautiful thing, worthy of cherishing.
Location: El Rancon De La Vieja, Costa Rica.
